Rumours Swirling Of Michael Conlan Outdoor Fight In West Dublin This Autumn

Michael Conlan could be set to bring an outdoor boxing to Dublin with a rumoured fight in Lucan this September.

Details are still coming together, but there were rumours on social media Monday night that Conlan is on the verge of announcing the first professional fight of his career in the nation's capital.

The Boxing Ticket NI Twitter account, which has proven to be reputable in the past, tweeted news of a Conlan fight in Dublin that featured Tyrone McKenna and Luke Keeler on the card, with a mooted venue of 5,000 people (for reference there were 9,000 people at Taylor v Cameron at the Point).

Michael Conlan retweeted the news last night, as did McKenna. Jamie Conlan liked a post relating to the fight on instagram, so there seems to be something in the works here.


Conlan has put on a number of big outdoor fights at the Falls Park venue in Belfast but bringing outdoor boxing to west Dublin would be a big - but fascinating - undertaking.

Michael Conlan's next move

The 2012 bronze medalist lost his last fight to world featherweight champion Luis Alberto Lopez by TKO, leaving his career at something of a crossroads.

He spoke honestly about the defeat afterwards and his failure to perform.


That wasn’t anywhere near the type of performance I put on. I just didn’t feel like I was myself in there at all.

“I can’t complain as the training camp was perfect. The preparation was really good and unlike the (Leigh) Wood one where I had Covid before, there was nothing this time. I was flying, everything went well, but on the night everything just went out the window and I went blank.

“Things I never do in any fight like going to have a firefight with a guy you shouldn’t be doing it with and have much better boxing ability than... it was a weird one. My head wasn’t right and things didn’t feel right when I was warming up. I don’t know what it was, I can’t put my finger on it.

“I felt off and that there was something up. I didn’t know what it was — I just wasn’t myself and it showed.”

Given that 2023 will likely give us two Katie Taylor fights at The Point, an outdoor Mick Conlan fight in Dublin would be another hugely exciting Irish boxing card.

You can bet the ring walk would be epic.
